Join us for a truly amazing presentation of mental mathematical gymnastics that will seemingly turn math into magic. We watched as mathemagician and math whiz Arthur Benjamin “out-calculated” an electronic calculator and figured out the weekday of any date in history with lightning-fast speed. We discovered the fun side of math that’s sometimes easy to forget when doing your homework, and met a surprising young guest who just might be a worthy mathemagical opponent.
The Mathemagician event was followed by Mathemagician’s Apprentice, a workshop in which Benjamin divulged some of his amazing mental-math secrets. For ages 10 and up.
Limited number of WSF Supporter tickets still available here. Additional general admission tickets may become available at the door an hour before the program.
